When will Fedor Emelianenko fight again? Never has such a simple question required such a complex answer.

While Emelianenko is currently under contract with M-1 Global, who also have a co-promotion agreement with Strikeforce, the organizations are currently in a holding pattern as they address disagreements that arose from the November event "Fedor vs. Rogers."

The last three fights that Fedor has had have been against highly ranked fighters – very strong opponents.




Apparently Arlovski, Sylvia, Rogers > Fujita, Thompson, Rogers

Uhhhh... Are you saying that is not the case? Arlovski and Sylvia aren't better than Thompson and Fujita?

It's hard to say that now...I guess I'm looking at it with hindsight. I'm not too sure anyone could say that any of those fighters are elite at the present moment. Touche, Aether, Touche.
